'Tender Moments' Horses graphite pencil drawing by Tom Fletcher
Tender Moments
  by  Tom Fletcher
Here's an image of the Tender Moment subject, drawn on Mellotex card - pure white with a super smooth surface that can take dark Graphite with ease. I have used a number of pencil grades to create the tones and textures along with the effect of the short hair to most areas of the two horses. I had to try and follow the forms of the horses and also ensure the light was apparent on them.

This took a number of days to complete. I worked from a reference photograph of my own that I took when I saw the two and wanted to catch the moment forever.
